What Makes Debt Consolidation Different From Bankruptcy?
Debt consolidation differs from bankruptcy because it is not a formal debt solution that provides legal protection from creditor actions such as wage garnishments.
To obtain a debt consolidation loan you must apply for it (typically at your bank). In addition, bankruptcy and consumer proposals are zero interest programs that will include all your debt. A debt consolidation loan will have interest and may not capture every debt you owe because it will be up to your lender’s discretion as to what should be included.
Discovering All of Your Options
Marcus was looking for a debt consolidation loan. He did not think he needed to file for bankruptcy, so he had avoided speaking with a Licensed Insolvency Trustee. He was going to sign on with his bank to consolidate 3 of his 5 debts for a reduced interest rate over the next 36 months.
However, the consolidation payment was too high, and he would have to give up his car to maintain it. He called a Trustee who laid out all his options and he chose a consumer proposal instead. This meant he could keep his car and could afford his repayment plan.
